Crispy Black Bean Tacos

The orginal recipe for Crispy Black Bean Tacos come from this site. If you want the original, you will have to find it there. The recipe below is my take on it. It's super yummy and pretty good for you too.

Crispy Black Bean Tacos
1 15-ounce can black beans, drained
1 teaspoon ground cumin
5 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 clove garlic
2 cups red leaf, green leaf or romain
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 white or yellow corn tortillas
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 grilled chicken breast seasoned with olive oil, garlic (already prepared)

Place beans, cumin and garlic in small bowl; partially mash. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat for just a minute in the microwave. Mix cilantro with lettuce. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in large nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add tortillas in single layer. Spoon bean mixture onto half of each tortilla with few pieces of chicken; cook 1 minute. Fold tacos in half. Fill tacos with feta and and lettuce.

In the pan ready to fry.

Before all the yummy feta cheese and lettuce. This is such a good recipe. I'm hungry for it right now!
